Walking Stick kale is the stuff of legend. Also known as Tall Jacks, Jersey Cabbage or Cow Cabbage, this extra-tall kale is said to grow up to 20 feet in its native range. Grown in Europe for centuries, mostly on the island of Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, where its long sturdy stalks were varnished and turned into canes. The leaves are also considered excellent forage for animals with the most tender, young greens reserved for table use. Its many unusual uses, coupled with its strikingly tall stature, make it a standout variety from antiquity that we are delighted to see.
